Punching Out the Fat & Willpower

For the first time in my life I am loving exercise and have willpower.  The 6 weeks of my Girl Fight Fit class has come to an end.  However due to 2 snow cancellations they have agreed to add another week onto my session. I completed the 14 day Oola Tea Detox. I chose to continue drinking the Detox Tea every morning a 1/2 hour before I eat breakfast and Energy Tea in the afternoon.  I haven't had a cup of coffee since Feb 11th.  I am down 11 lbs. and am feeling so much better.  I don't drink a gallon of water a day anymore.  I needed to stop spending the whole day in the bathroom. I am drinking around 3/4 of a gallon.

I love the idea of punching away the fat.  All of my anger and anxiety has been linked to my weight, my whole life. So while I'm doing my kickboxing classes I imagine that I'm punching the fat away.  I have never liked exercise.  I get anxiety going to the gym and exercising in front of people feeling like they are watching and judging me.  I hate the treadmill, both walking and running. The first day I went to Girl Fight Fit my heart was racing.  But punching and kicking a bag, and doing the circuit of floor exercises, I LOVE.   The first night was really hard, so were the 2nd and 3rd.  After that my anxiety was gone. Looking around the room I saw women of all ages and sizes. I new I was not alone and my anxiety went down every day a little bit the first few times until it was gone.  Last week the instructor complimented, saying that my form has improved and that I'm doing so good, she sees the improvement.  That made me feel great.

I add either a drop of Slique Essence or Grapefruit Vitality essential oil both from Young Living to my water.  It's quite yummy, which helps when you are drinking a lot of water.

I am still eating doing the 80/20 plan.  I eat healthy, counting calories with the my fitness pal app 6 out of 7 days and then I cheat one day a week.  I really haven't kept myself from my cravings, I just examine the choices, serving size and calories before I eat something.

I continue wearing my fitness affirmation bracelet to remind me that "I AM FIT, healthy, disciplined and strong."
